This 54-year-old Chinese Indonesian dentist came to Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie for autologous fat grafting to her nasolabial lines.
As someone who has had autologous fat grafting facial rejuvenation performed by Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie 13 years ago, she knows that fat grafting is so much cheaper and longer lasting compared to fillers. Fillers injection is charged by the syringe (per 1 cc syringe), and often lasts 1 year only. Fat grafting, however, may last beyond 10 years, just like in her case. Since the fat is free, the surgeon only charges for the procedure, regardless of how much fat is being injected. Her fat grafts, injected 13 years ago, still survives today! All she needs is just a little bit of touch-up on her nasolabial lines, because, well, she has aged 13 years since then!
When she came to Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie 13 years ago, she requested for eye bags removal surgery. She had seen another plastic surgeon in Medan, who advised her to get her eye bags removed. When she heard that there was a new surgeon in town who just returned from Singapore, and she preferred an oversea-trained surgeon to perform the surgery for her, she came to see Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie for eye bags removal surgery.
However, upon examination of her face, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie advised her that there was nothing for him to remove! The appearance of under-eye circles were caused by her deep tear troughs. That was made worse by her extremely sunken mid-face. Although she was only in her early-40s back then, she appeared so much older and haggard, because of depleted fat in her mid-face. Instead of removing eye bags, which would make her appearance even worse, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie advised her to get fat injection into her mid-face, instead! She was so thankful that she never heeded the other surgeon’s advice to get her eye bags removed! She would have ended up looking like a vampire, if she had done so!
